She molded the old clay in her hands, disregarding the sharp pain that coursed through her fingers. She was tired after a long day of work, and her fingers ached, but her intention to mould this dream surpassed by far any ailment that could befall her at this point.
The clay gave in, and the young girl began to shape – a face, a body, hands and strong legs, a vision of perfect health. A purpose. Ultimately, a dream.
Her best friend had lost function of the legs after being hit by a drunk driver on the sidewalk. The doctors were reserved with their prognosis.
She wiped her stinging eyes furiously as she put the clay figurine in the over, to bake. In the next thirty minutes, she would create the origami gift box and ornate with it drawn doodles and words. She would then paint the figurine, glaze it and let it dry. And she would take it to her best friend the next day, just before her surgery.
And when her best friend’s eyes lit up in glee, as she lifted the small figurine representing her pure self, the young girl knew they had taken the first step to a miracle together.
